WINNERS


Kaanger Valley Academy

The winners of YIP 2018, team Anti-Pollution Mask, came up with the most simple yet effective idea for dealing with the problem of pollution. Based on the cleansing properties of charcoal, they devised an anti-pollution mask that is reusable, cheap and can be easily prepared at home. Most importantly, it can be used by people from all walks of life and by all age groups, young and old alike.

The Crossword School

Team Pothole Warriors from Andhra Pradesh came up with an alternative that would quickly and efficiently fill potholes, which is currently a very cumbersome process requiring manual labour. This portable and easy-to-use model helps in saving the roads and increases their durability.

Tarapore School

The students came up with an effective solution to reduce the problems faced in our country due to improper waste management. Their Smart waste management system makes garbage collection more efficient, and the use of solar panels reduces energy consumption. By reducing the manpower required to handle garbage collection, and given that it is aligned with the ‘Smart City’ and ‘Digital India’ projects undertaken by our country, this project surely is one for the future
